Patterson School Simulation
Students in several journalism courses participate each year in a crisis simulation with the Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce. In 2010, the crisis scenario involved an Israeli attack on nuclear sites in Iran, and diplomatic and military fall-out from that. Our students developed content for two separate new sites, International News Network and Gulf News Network. During the 22-hour simulation, students provided Web updates, videotaped coverage, managed the content management system for the two web sites, shot photos and coordinated background material and maps.
